Oby Kechere Comments on Nollywood Sex Scandals
Actress and movie director, Oby Kechere alias Ms Koi-Koi braved it last week in Lagos when she spoke with Sunday Sun. For her, the issue of sexual harassment in Nollywood is no big deal.
“I keep telling people that the issue of sexual harassment or somebody wanting to sleep with you before you can get a movie role is not an issue at all.”
Amazed? She thinks so not because it is non-existent in Nollywood. It is not peculiar to Nollywood either.
The Mbaise, Imo State-born actress believes she’s mature enough to chose who to go to bed with, regardless of any coincidence in profession. According to her, it is only proper for members of the opposite sex to be attracted to each other regardless of where they find themselves. Thus, she sees nothing wrong in dating a guy she admires, notwithstanding that they share the same profession.
“These things do not happen only in the movie industry, it happens everywhere,” she argues.
And by way of asking, Ms Koi-Koi wants to know: “What’s wrong with that?”
She rationalizes: “Anywhere you have men and women working together, there would always be the tendency for the men to ask the women out. And there is also the tendency for the women to admire the men, which is a normal thing.”
Oby Kechere sad sexual harassment exists in the Nigerian movie industry
Koi-Koi continues: “That sexual harassment exists in the Nigerian movie industry is not even an issue to discuss at all. If you are a woman and no man admires you, then you are in trouble. Meaning that something must definitely be wrong with you. And if you are a man, and all through your life, no woman has admired you, you must seek help fast.”
